Slim Aarons: Once Upon A Time Hardcover Book

“Attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places” was the mantra of photographer Slim Aarons. After serving as a combat photographer in World War II, Aarons wanted to shift his focus to subjects that were more pleasant and fun than the horrors of the battlefield. He began freelancing for magazines such as Life, Harper’s Bazaar and Town & Country, turning the lens of his Leica towards the charmed life of wealthy socialites and celebrities. Slim Aarons: Once Upon a Time collects over two hundred and fifty of his subtly decadent, glowing images of the good life. Spanning from the postwar period to the 1980’s, these environmental portraits capture elite members of society, Hollywood, fashion, royalty and industry enjoying themselves among country homes, grand ballrooms, sun-kissed seaside getaways and snowy European enclaves. While they are a product of a bygone era, Aarons’ images resonate today as the precursor to celebrity lifestyle photography becoming ubiquitous. Once Upon a Time is an escapist journey for anyone seeking some old school luxury in their day-to-day life.
